    I know I don’t have to bind knit edges, but am wanting to make a lap shoulder baby gown out of knit. Can I use a woven fabric cut on bias to bind edge to add some detail? Would it stretch far enough? I do not want to waste fabric trying it if anyone else has and discovered it won’t work…. ??? Thanks for input!

    Do you mean an envelope style neck? Where the back comes over the front at the shoulders and opens up to allow dressing?

    You can use a woven binding but remember, that it will not be that stretchy so you will need to make sure it will fit over babies head, just with the envelope style opening.

    I hope that is some help.
